Research Institution
NIH through NIDA solicits the research and development of digital markers for detection of marijuana intoxication and cognitive impairmentIn this Project the ContractorCharles River Analyticsin partnership with the SubcontractorMcLean Hospitalproposes to design and demonstrate a prototype system for the Specification of Acute THC Impairment using Validated AlgorithmsSATIVASATIVAingests data across available sensors and psychometric tasks delivered through a mobile applicationprocesses and fuses data of varying availability and fidelityaccounts for intraand inter individual differences to detect potentially subtle signals indicative of impairmentandcollects and displays data in a manner appropriate for each use caseThis solutiongrounded in empirical clinical trial researchwill provide a means to accurately assess acute impairment due to marijuana intoxication for law enforcement personnel and legal representationenabling them to remove individuals from situations in which they are highly likely to harm themselvesfor clinical intake staffallowing them to more quickly and efficiently treat impaired patientsand research staffallowing them to more accurately assess research participants
